Laura Petersen

Today, I’m interviewing Laura Petersen, a tall Math and Psychology teacher turned international bestselling author, international speaker, podcaster, and persuasive writing expert.

She helps people to {actually} make money with their books, build their brand authority, and grow their business.

Laura believes that helping others grow in business allows you to make a bigger impact in the world and have more time, money, and freedom to do more of what you love.

Laura is the host of the popular podcast Copy That Pops and she is the author of two best selling books on Amazon, Copywriting for Podcasters and Permission to Write a Brand Building Book for Podcasters. Both books hit #1 in their categories in the U.S. and abroad.

I met Laura earlier this year when we were both volunteering for the Social Media Marketing World conference and was instantly impressed with her confidence in networking. She took me under her wing and bestowed some of her marketing wisdom on me, even getting me into an exclusive networking party!

After seeing Laura in action at the conference (and events since!), I have noticed such a huge difference in my own networking confidence. So I wanted to have her on the podcast today to share this wisdom with you!

Networking is such an important skill and you can use it to improve all areas of your life. Most obviously yes, you can improve your career, but you can also take this so much further! I’m talking about so much more than just your career. I’m talking about your dreams and the dreams of the people around you. Networking can help make your dreams a reality and that’s a theme that came up often in this interview.

Laura talks about her journey from teaching to owning her own business and everything in between. Every step of the way, she met new people, learned new skills, and increased her own confidence. I hope that after hearing this interview, you will as well.
